“Very nice B&B”
Reviewed 22 September 2011

Hawthorn is a meticulously maintained bed and breakfast. The accommodations were excellent. We especially appreciated that the hosts accommodated our late arrival (came by train). There were two drawbacks. One is that it is a $75 cab ride to the airport. The other is that Hawthorn has a $25 cancellation fee. We changed from three nights to two nights with over three weeks notice but were still charged the fee. We haven't encountered that kind of cancellation policy in our many years of travel.

My husband and I stayed at the Hawthorn for a long weekend trip to Kansas City. We were very pleased with our stay and can't say enough how wonderful Jim and Wendy are! They were very helpful and really made us feel as if we were their only guests that weekend. The breakfast was amazing and very filling! The scones are to die for! Jim is quite the cook! I recommend this lovely B&B to anyone wanting a relaxing stay in Kansas City. We had no issues getting from the B&B to the attractions we wanted to see. The home-baked cookies we found in our room the first night were a pleasant and delicious surprise! Stay at Hawthorn...you won't regret it!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Hawthorn Inn. My room, the Evans, was
extremely clean, well organized, smartly furnished and included wi-fi! The Innkeepers, Jim and Wendy were welcoming and very helpful. Their suggestions for sites-to-see around Independence, as well as where to have dinner were perfect! I stayed two nights and both breakfasts were delightful. This is not a skimpy continental breakfast, but a full, wonderfully prepared meal! I can assure you, you won't leave hungry! The Inn is a fabulous value, and its location makes it ideal for travel to Independence, Kansas City and surrounding areas.

We've had the pleasure of staying at this B&B twice and will definitely return. The rooms are clean, neat, and uncluttered. Lovely antiques throughout. The breakfasts are delicious and filling - we often didn't need lunch! The innkeepers are extremely friendly and are very willing to make recommendations for restaurants and activities. While the B&B is not located in Kansas City, we usually drove into the city in the evening for dinner/music and found the drive to be quick and easy. Definitely consider this for your Kansas City base.

Was surprised by my husband with a weekend trip to KC. Elegant on entrance of house, led to room which in some ways was outdated (mattress seemed older than me) and other ways updated (bathrooms recently redone). As a young married couple, we have little experience but was more impressed with other parts of the B&B than our room. Breakfast was great! We had a private table and the food kept coming. We also got to pick the time we wanted to eat (within a block). It is in a good location--sort of odd that it's in the middle of everything and yet not really close to much (not within walking distance to anything we were interested in). Overall, wasn't bad but not amazing compared to experiences since then.
